This Psalm reflects the greatness of God, which contrasts with the wickedness of man. It details the qualities of God and his attributes, including a helping hand to the fatherless, a judge for ever, and a king forever. These qualities help to explain the psalmist's reassuring confidence in God.
The psalmist is confident that God will judge the wicked, and he prays that the wicked will be caught in their schemes. Though this request may sound like a complaint against God, it's important to remember that it comes from the psalmist's confident trust in God's rule. He realized that, without God, the wicked would not flourish.
Despite the psalmist's confidence in God, he still fears that God might be far away and indifferent to him. In his struggle, he sees a wicked man who oppresses the poor and renounces the word of God. He also sees a world filled with wickedness and greed.
Kings and nations despise their enemies. They look at them with the greatest disdain. They puff at the enemies God is preparing for them. It is impolitic and impious to despised the instruments of God's wrath.
A wicked man is someone who sneers at others and doesn't believe in God. God can punish a wicked person, but he's not likely to do it. Nevertheless, those who do wrong to others are also abusing God, so we should pray for their salvation.
The Septuagint version of Psalm 10 suggests that it is a continuation of Psalm 9. This makes the two psalms one and the same. The Septuagint version of the Psalm differs from other versions.
The sons of Korah composed Psalm 46, which contains the famous verse 10. Korah was a descendant of Levi son of Jacob and the Kohath family. It was written for the attention of the Chief Musician. Therefore, Psalm 10 is not the best choice to read as your Bible verse of the day.
In this Psalm, we learn that God has promised protection against evil and a reward for righteous behavior. The wicked man, however, feels free to do what he wants and carries out evil deeds, and assumes that God doesn't care. Despite all the evil in the world, God's justice will prevail. He will judge the wicked and protect His people, and someday, he will rid the earth of sin and suffering.
The psalmist continues to describe the wickedness of those around him. This wickedness is characterized by its secretiveness and its tendency to target the weak. While it is tempting to rely on this type of evil, it is not wise to trust them.
David was confident that the LORD would judge the wicked and show them that their work would be in vain. In the end, his hope was that the peoples of the earth would understand their utter dependence on God and recognize their worth before Him. David did not compare himself with other nations, knowing that God would judge them with greater severity than he. He also looked forward to the day when God would rule over the nations.
The word muth (lubben) may mean 'tune'. It may also describe an instrument. The New King James Version associates it with the phrase "the death of the Son." Another ancient Chaldee version associates the word with Goliath. This suggests that David wrote the psalm after the battle with Goliath.
This psalm was one of the first acrostic psalms. It occupies half of the Hebrew alphabet, while Psalm 10 takes up the rest. Psalm 9 has a triumphant tone, suggesting that it was written in celebration of David's victory over Goliath. On the other hand, Psalm 10 is lamentative, and has a mournful tone.
